Why We Shouldn’t Use Our Phones as an Alarm Clock



Our phones have become an important part of our lives. We use them for many things, such as applying for a job, searching for information, or finding a new place to live. In fact, it seems that life will come to a complete stop if we accidentally break them. And setting an alarm is a task that almost everyone does on their phone, however, there are some very bad things that can happen if you do that.

So here are the reasons to replace the alarm on your smartphone with a real one. You won’t believe number 4!




1. It can harm your sleep.



That’s because we really can’t help but scroll through our social media pages and perform tasks on our phones before we go to sleep. However, not only will this reduce the amount of time you sleep, but the blue light on the phone can affect the quality of your rehearsals and lead to trouble.




2. It can disturb your routine in the morning.



Again, once we have a phone in our hands, we automatically start checking emails and messages. And this, of course, takes much longer than you originally anticipated, forcing you to rush into the routine procedures that are really important to keep us on time and in shape.



3. It may be hard to hear.




Since it’s not as loud as a real alarm, you can easily miss its ringing. In addition, we are all used to the sounds our phones make during the day, so it can be ineffective as a real alarm to wake us out of deep sleep.



4. Its battery may die.

Alarms on cell phones don’t work when the battery is low, so if you don’t want to be late for something important, you’d better use a real alarm. Even if you always do your best to keep it charged, you may not notice your battery running low before you fall asleep.
